Easy Eats: Balsamic Glazed Grilled Chicken Breasts
The weather is starting to feel more like fall and less like summertime in the Midwest. I love fall, but being a Minnesotan, I know that means summer sunshine and the perfect grilling weather will soon be coming to a close- unfortunately whether I decide I’m ready for it or not. Every year around this time I scramble to grill up all my different recipes before it gets too cold outside.
This week’s featured Easy Eats is a delicious Balsamic Glazed Grilled Chicken Breast Recipe. I served this dish with some simple garden greens and spinach mix salad and it ended up being a perfect back-to-school weekday meal because of how quick and easy it was.
This recipe calls for very few ingredients. I already had Salt, Pepper and Brown Sugar on hand, so all I really needed to pick up was Balsamic Vinegar, Garlic and Rosemary. The prep time for this dish is a total of 5 minutes, and most of that time comes from chopping and mixing the ingredients to make the glaze. Keep in mind this glaze is best when the ingredients are very finely chopped. Be sure to chop the Garlic and Rosemary very small so that the flavorful glaze will be evenly spread.
Once the glaze is done I simply placed the chicken breasts on the grill, added the glaze evenly each time I flipped the chicken and then ta-da… I had a meal ready for a family of four!
After making this dish and seeing how beautiful the spices look on the chicken I will definitely be serving it for a more formal dinner get-together. If your dinner is indeed more formal you can dress up your platter even further with the left over Rosemary stems to add an extra level of appearance to your plate.
I hope that you can embrace the upcoming fall season and that this recipe is a perfect compliment to an end-of-summer get-together!
